Welcome to the
Center for Organ Recovery & Education
There are many faces of donation. Some are the faces of people waiting for a life-saving or life-enhancing transplant. Some are those who can enjoy another day because someone said "yes" to donation. Many remind us to celebrate life through their gift of organ and tissue donation. At the Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE), we want to add another face to donation: yours. Please browse our website to learn the facts on donation, read the personal accounts of lives touched by donation and discover how you can help.
"Let the leaves symbolize the donors.
Like softly fallen petals that nourish the earth, they have touched the lives of others."

Organ Donation Toolbox is an Internet-based repository or virtual “toolbox” of administrative and clinical resources, suggested educational strategies, and supporting materials for both Organ Procurement Organizations (OPO) and donor hospitals. This toolbox is a collection of OPO and donor hospital best practices in one convenient virtual location. The Organ Donation Toolbox is a collaborative project that was made possible by the Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice as well as its workgroup members. The toolbox includes topics such as: checklists, policies, quality tools, legal and regulatory references, intensivist models, and information about brain injury guidelines, donation after circulatory determination of death, donor designation, donor management, neurologic determination of death, and pediatric donation.
Please visit: http://healthcarecommunities.org/donationtoolbox to view these best practices. You may also add the toolbox to your mobile device as an “app” or a shortcut link. Simply navigate to the above address and add the icon/address to your home screen from your Internet toolbar. If you have any questions, please contact: Helen Bollinger, Grants & Government Liaison at email@example.com or 412-963-3550.
